WPWeekly Episode 69 – Grava what

wordpressweekly1 In this episode, David Peralty and a few others join me to talk about the news of the week. Most of the news stories deal with Automattic owned services such as IntenseDebate and Polldaddy rather than WordPress. One of the discussion points focused on why Gravatar has not yet made it mainstream. While the audio quality is not so great in this episode, I hope you’ll be able to listen through it for this particular conversation.

WordPress Tavern Listener Poll:

Last weeks poll question was: Do you think the Codex is the future of documentation for WordPress?

Out of a total of 45 votes, 23 of you said Yes, 20 of you said No while 2 of you wanted to know what is a Codex.

This Weeks Poll Question Is: Have You Enjoyed Your Stay At The Tavern So Far?

Picks Of The Week:

JeffIRCLogs.wordpress.org – Enables you to see the log file for the bbPress, BuddyPress development, WordPress development, WordPress, and WPMU IRC channels. The log file page also provides a nifty bar of options at the top where you can easily switch channel logs, view log files from the past few months, or perform a search. So if you can’t catch those WordPress developer chats on Thursdays, this is the place to go to read the log file of the meeting.
